The 2112 is priced too steeply. Why would any1 buy the 2112 when they can buy a colour phone by paying a few hundred extra?

Anyone checked 6585 model ?

I checked Nokia site and feature wise it looks much better than 6012 or 3105. Mainly Infrared connectivity (PC Suite), 500 contacts and FM Radio and all legendary user friendly Nokia features.

Looks like this is CDMA equivalent of 6610 plus voice dialing. I would prefer this over camera phones any time.

Anyone has info on pricing ? If it's around 7500/- this should be better buy.

UD
